I'd have been much happier about it if they got the facts straight.
No, I didn't invent HTTP -- just parts of HTTP. It is a lot harder to
standardize something than invent it. And please don't ask me to assign
you a web address [I have no idea how my authoring the URI spec got
translated into that]. They didn't even mention Apache. And my friends
at eBuilt have had a great deal of fun abusing me with the "mad scientist"
picture (and to think they picked that from the 100 or so shots taken
by their photographer.... feh). Talking to a reporter is like eating
a box of chocolates found next to a dumpster.

Almost there... passed the final defense last week; now I just
have a few bits to write by the end of the month and I'm done.
